Imagine how amazing it would be to be able to accompany some of those videos with the right music? It could make for a pretty entertaining video if you choose the right song and then add it into the home video of your children – and it is actually possible to do that quite easily with the help of the Movavi Video Editor.

All that you need to do to add music to video is:

  1. Select the home video of your children that you want to edit by clicking on ‘Add Media Files’ and browsing for it.
  2. Select the song that you want to add to the video by clicking on ‘Add Media Files’ as well and locating it.
  3. Both the files will be placed in the ‘Timeline’ and you can check to see if their lengths match. If they do not you should cut one or the other by clicking on it and placing the red marker in the location where you want to cut it and then clicking on the ‘Scissors’ button. Alternatively you could duplicate the audio track so that the song repeats.
  4. When you’re satisfied, click ‘Export’ and choose a format to save your video.
